Only down-stiker that has ever been made to work with any kind of reliability.

One thing, though, everybody knows by now that the mouse should be kept next to the computer, not in the piano.

I think I'd be more grossed out by the idea of a mouse in my home than just inside my piano wink

I believe that PianoDisc has tried to get that as well as a similar one by, I think, Bugs Bunny. They uswed it as a demo piece at NAMM years ago, but couldn't acquire the rights.

Great stuff.

I'd first tune it... so the tone isn't as CHEESY...

Haha... funny that you posted that cartoon, because based on the title of the thread, I was going to reply: throw a cat in there and close the lid.

This was entirely made by hand, drawn freehand. No computers. 24 frames per second over a few hundred seconds. There are only a few studios that do this kind of work anymore.

Perhaps my most favorite cartoon of all times. This never gets old!

Back to the question. Trade it off to your favorite (or least favorite) dealer. Hopefully with the mouse still be in it. However,if you have a mouse like the one in the cartoon,send him my way. I will make him my mascot. He plays a lot better than me. FYI-I'll take the cat too.
